About

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who as a generalist works with a variety of presenting problems and enjoys working with different populations. I have extensive experience working with women, men, adolescents, and children with eating disorders and OCD. It is critical to individually tailor treatment to each client's needs. I utilize relational, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, values based therapies in my practice. I have experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups. I have a collaborative approach where therapist and client work as a team to better understand the problem and work towards healing and emotional health.
I have worked in all levels of eating disorder care (residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, colleges) to help those suffering from Anorexia, Bulimia, and Binge Eating Disorder. I also specialize in treating Anxiety Disorders(OCD, Social, Panic Disorder) and utilize Exposure with Response Prevention.
I welcome a diverse clientele and have specialized training with LGBTQ community and really enjoy working with this population. I enjoy working to empower my clients and look forward to working together to develop lasting change in both relationships and with the self.
